Tom Bergeron: A Man's Guest Spot Is His 'Castle'

by Michael Maloney, posted Apr 9th 2010 9:07PM
'Dancing With the Stars' main man Tom Bergeron is playing Bobby Mann -- a late night talk show host who gets canceled permanently on the April 12 episode of 'Castle,' which airs on ABC immediately after the 'DWTS' two-hour performance show. It's up to series star Nathan Fillion and his TV detective partner, played by Stana Katic, to find out who killed Bobby.

AOL spoke with Bergeron, who weighed in on 'Castle,' the current -- and arguably most-talked about -- cast of 'Dancing With the Stars,' and how he handles those pesky TMZ.com interviews.

Is 'Desperate Housewives' Abusing Its Stars?Just how desperate is 'Desperate Housewives' becoming? The show fired star Nicollete Sheridan after its fifth season, saving a reported $100,000 to $200,000 per episode by getting rid of the actress. But now, Sheridan is claiming that she was physically abused by Marc Cherry, the show's creator. Sheridan says Cherry "forcefully hit her with his hand across her face and head," and she now is suing for $20 million.

Nicollette Sheridan Sues 'Housewives' Creator Marc Cherry

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 6th 2010 11:03AM
nicolette_sheridan_edie_britt_abcPerhaps you've heard that 'Desperate Housewives' exile Nicollette Sheridan has filed a whopper of a lawsuit against ABC and Marc Cherry, the creator of the show. Her claim is that she was not only wrongfully terminated, but that Cherry struck her in September 2008 when she asked him about something in the script.

Officially, the suit covers even more than those two charges. There are seven in all: wrongful termination, assault and battery, gender violence, discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation and age, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Sheridan is seeking $20 million in compensation.

Violence against women -- or men for that matter -- is a serious charge, and it would be naive to think that this could not have happened. That said, it does seem like something right out of a 'Desperate Housewives' script. Would Marc Cherry have been so upset with Sheridan to strike her? Wouldn't it have been witnessed by other people on the set? Perhaps that will come out in the case.

Teri Hatcher Teams With Disney for GetHatched.com

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 29th 2010 4:27PM
Teri HatcherLet's face it: the Internet is a man's world. It's populated by an endless supply of videos of dumbasses getting hit in the nuts, how-to guides on illegal fuel injection modifications and porno, porno, porno.

Thankfully, one woman aims to change all that. Actress and 'Desperate Housewives' star Teri Hatcher is on the heels (see what I did there?) of launching her own woman-oriented website, the aptly named GetHatched.com.

So far, it looks to be a web magazine for women that provides stories from Hatcher and other contributors "that celebrates women and offers funny and real answers to life's little dilemmas and big problems." In other words, it's the Lifetime Network but it actually relates to women.

Dana Delany on 'Castle,' 'Desperate Housewives' and Kissing Julie Benz

by Jenna Busch, posted Mar 22nd 2010 6:00PM
CastleABC has learned what we all knew for so long: Dana Delany is a hot commodity. Not only is the 'Desperate Housewives' star heating things up on the series, she's guesting on 'Castle' and things have gotten so hot they're literally explosive.

On 'Castle' (Mon., 10PM ET on ABC), Delany plays Jordan Shaw, an FBI investigator called in to help catch a serial killer. Fans will naturally recognize this as a mini 'Desperate Housewives' reunion because 'Castle' star Nathan Fillion played Delany's husband on the series.

We got a chance to chat with Delany and she gave us the scoop on her 'Castle' stint, the pilot that could determine whether she returns for next season's 'Desperate Housewives' (Sun., 9PM ET on ABC) and whether Fillion or Julie Benz is the better kisser.
Check out the interview after the jump.

Desperate Housewives(S06E18) "You should never trust family photos. They are designed to be deceiving." - Mary Alice when describing the Van De Kamp's photos

Last week's episode set a lot of storylines in motion: Preston and Irina's upcoming wedding, Sam becoming a part of Bree's life, Katherine and Robin potentially becoming a couple, and Patrick eventually finding the Bolens. This week, these four storylines continued to be developed and questions were raised as we fast approach the final episodes of this season of 'Desperate Housewives.'

Before I comment on these four storylines and the fact that Preston still has the worst fake mustache in TV history, I must warn you that the next new episode will air on April 18. That means we will have to wait close to a month before getting new dish on our favorite Wisteria Lane residents!

'Desperate Housewives' - 'Chromolume #7' Recap

Desperate Housewives
(S06E17) "I know that you have a secret." - Gaby to Angie

'Desperate Housewives' titles are always found in lyrics of songs written by Stephen Sondheim. This week's unusual title is no different. 'Chromolume #7' is a song in the musical 'Sunday in the Park with George.' More precisely, the Chromolume #7 is a color and light machine featured in an act of the musical.

The title fits with Mary Alice's commentary at the end of the episode saying that it's not always easy to see people's true colors and that people hide their true nature from us every day. This week, we got confirmation on Angie's secret, we learned who Sam really is, we discovered how Gaby acted when she was a high profile model, and we met Preston's girlfriend and mustache!

Who's Coming and Going on 'Desperate Housewives'?

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 6th 2010 9:55AM
desperate_housewives_cast_white_setMarc Cherry, the creator of 'Desperate Housewives,' would probably appreciate this reference. In the 1932 Oscar-winning movie 'Grand Hotel' -- which became a Tony-winning musical on Broadway -- one character, Dr. Otternschlag, who lives at the hotel and observes the action, comments wryly, "People come and go. Nothing ever happens." Of course, a zillion things happen; he's just unaware from his perch in the lobby.

Wisteria Lane is like that. From some neighbor's point of view, nothing happens. However, as viewers, we know better! And as for the people come and go, well, that's abundantly clear with the news this week.

Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello had two major casting items about the ABC drama. Emmy-winner Drea de Matteo is leaving 'Desperate Housewives' and Dana Delany might be out, too.
